This was our second visit to the Taj Mahal after 23 years and were quite disappointed as it was extremely crowded and were just rushed (pushed) in and out. We could not enjoy it. It really was not worth the visit from Delhi. Would definitely recommend the Akshardham Temple in New Delhi over this any day.

I'm sure the Taj Mahal is on everyone's bucket list. It was on mine! I was not disappointed in the visit. It is truly extraordinary! We were there during the worst of the air pollution so it was a little hazy. That was ok, you can still walk up close to look at the amazing stonework and inlay. There are... More

Its just amazing!! Well maintained. However kindly note few things: 1. You need to remove your shows before walking into the Taj. There are some guys who provide the cloak-room kinda service for your shoes, and you may pay them depending upon your wish at the time of exit. Alternatively, you may buy a "cover" for your shoes available outside... More

Must see destination that didn't disapoint - if possible plan to be there when the ticket office opens before dawn in order to get in early and avoid the crowds. We were able to take many great pictures without waiting for other tourists to move out of the way.

Once you successfully navigate the entrance 'maze' (successfully covered in other reviews), the sight of the Taj Mahal is breathtaking. The sheer scale of the building and its intricate and delicate designs will keep you awestruck for hours. Some tips from a 'foreign' family trip: 1. The dawn trip is not an absolute necessity in winter. Midday is the best... More

The Taj Mahal was more beautiful than I ever imagined. Highly recommend arriving first thing in the morning to enjoy the sunrise and smaller crowds. Be prepared for the poverty that lies meters from this top tourist destination and world wonder.

I have traveled to many places, but this is the most awe inspiring place I have seen. Get there early (I didn't go for sunrise as its winter and therefore very foggy in the morning so you can't see her) - I was there around 9am and it was perfect!

You can do this tour on your own but an good guide can enhance the experience. Stick with official guides, the pretend locals standing at the gate entrance might not be your best bet.
